Logging on

Children should aim to log on to Google Classroom at 8.45 each morning to register and find out about their learning for the day. A year group remote learning classroom has been set up for each year group.

  • Your child should log in to Google classroom as normal and will need to accept the invite to the new Year Group Remote Learning Classroom.
  • Your child’s username and password can be found in the front of their contact book.
  • Please join with your microphone off (please help your child practise how to turn it on and off).
  • We ask that children are suitably dressed (not in their night clothes) and that they work in an open space where there is no background noise to distract them.
  • They will need a pencil and their home learning book. We recognise that it will be difficult for those families where there is more than one child.
  • We would suggest that your child logs into at least one lesson during the school day so that they can be registered.

Learning

You will find a weekly timetable on this website and will be provided with a more detailed daily timetable each evening ready for the next day in the Google Classroom. 

Teachers will post the PowerPoints of the lessons/links to lessons that will take place daily in your child’s Google Classroom so that if you are unable to join at that time you can complete the work in your own time.

All children have previously been provided with a Home Learning Book. Your teacher may ask you to complete some work in this book and some work will be created and submitted online using Google click here to see how to submit work and upload work online.

Wellbeing

Please also read the online safety guide and share it with your children.
